• WWE Hall Of Famer Passed Away 34 Years Ago At The Age Of 23
It’s been 34 years since we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Mike Von Erich (Real name: Michael Adkisson) at the young age of 23 due to committing suicide.
Mike Von Erich was the son of the legendary World Class Championship Wrestling promoter Fritz Von Erich, as well as the brother of David Von Erich, “The Texas Tornado” Kerry Von Erich, Kevin Von Erich & Chris Von Erich.
In 2009, he, his father & his brothers were all inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but unfortunately his brother Kevin was the last one of them, who was still alive and there to accept the award.
Their former rival “Freebird” Michael “P.S.” Hayes inducted them.
